Computation

Solve multi-step word problems within 1,000,000 (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division).

1:

Identify the correct arithmetic processes based on the information presented in word problems.

2:

Find the key words in word problems that indicate the correct arithmetic process to use: Addition: add, altogether, both, combined, in all, plus, sum, total; Subtraction: difference, fewer, how many/much more, left, less, minus, remains; Multiplication: times, product, each, twice; and Division: how many in each, divided by, quotient, goes into, split evenly.

3:

Find and use the needed information in a word problem to solve.

4th

Vocabulary:

Operation, CUBES, Multi-step, Altogether, In total, More than, Times more, Equal groups

Activities:

1. Students continued working on multi-step word problems. They used strategies such as the CUBES method to solve problems. The problems ranged between 2-4 steps. They used key words to help them identify what operation they needed to solve each step.    Home Exploration

Target 2

:

1:

Recognize area as a measurement of 2D shapes.

2:

Recognize that area is measured in squared units (i.e., cm2), depicting that the measurement has both height and width.

3:

Find the area of composite figures.

4:

Decompose a composite figure into simple rectangles to compute area.

5:

Use the formula for finding the area of rectangular shapes (A = base x height).

4th

Vocabulary:

Decompose, Area, Squared units, Composite figures, Area formula 2D shapes, Rectangular

Activities:

1. Talked about and computed the area of simple 2D shapes using the formula A= bxh.

2. After doing a few examples, we moved on to discovering composite figures. We discussed how to decompose figures and the process to find the area of the whole shape. Worked together as a group and solved a few problems by talking through the process.

3. Next, students were given a few composite figures and were asked to find the area.    Home Exploration
